Afritadang Atay ng Baboy (Pork Liver Afritada)

Pork liver afritada is a simple pork liver dish which is very similar to chicken or pork afritada. Instead of using chicken or pork meat, pork liver is used. Cooking liver doesn’t require a long time to tenderize because the longer the cooking time, the tougher it will become. As much as possible, it should only be half cooked but it won’t kill the parasites or organisms which might cause diseases. The only option is to cook it thoroughly just like in the recipe instructions below or you can marinate it first with a little vinegar before cooking.
